Fourth of July update

Happy Fourth everyone, Hope you are having a great day.

Last weekend I was fortunate enough to be invited to NY to take a class with Jackie of It's Fine-ally Finished. Jackie taught Hands to Work, Hearts to God. This is a super project with Jackie's flare for beautiful and functional smalls. During class we worked on the lining for the Shaker carrier and started finishing the pieces that we had pre-stitched. I need to finish some hand stitching on my liner then it will be done. My lyre waxer pocket is done (middle left of 2nd picture on IFF site) and now I am working on the thread pail (gold piece upper right in 2nd picture on IFF site). Hope to have some pictures to share soon.

I do have 2 things that I finished on Friday night. One is my BBD Stocking that I started last month:

BBD: Winter Carnation
Fabric: 28 ct Coffee/tea dyed a la Vonna
Fibers: per pattern

and the second is a Mill Hill Kit that I did in honor of The Fourth of July.

Mill Hill: Flag Star
Perforated paper
Fibers and beads from kit.

Here is a link for a freebie chart if you would like to get started on your patriotic stitching: Quaker 4th of July , Thank you Aury.

Hope everyone is having a safe Fourth.
Thanks for stopping by,
Gwen
